Anne Immelé, Ph.D, has worked as an exhibition curator, building on theoretical, committed research, since her Master’s degree in Visual Arts at the Université Laval in Quebec, Canada (1997). She analyses the spatial installation of photography and the medium of the exhibition itself. Her curatorial research stems from a Doctorate of Arts thesis, entitled "Constellations Photographiques" submitted in 2007 at the University of Strasbourg and published by Médiapop Éditions in 2015. Anne Immelé lives and works in Mulhouse. Her photographs question our relationship to the territory in its multiple dimensions: geographical, human, social but also memorial and poetic. She is the author of several books, including WIR with the philosopher Jean-Luc Nancy published by Filigrane, ou Oublie Oublie, published by Médiapop in 2021. Her photographic work is regularly exhibited. Professor at HEAR, Haute Ecole des Arts du Rhin, she co-founded in 2013 the BPM – Biennale de la photographie de Mulhouse, of which she is the artistic director and curator of certain exhibitions.
